Johnson showed Embiid whatever message was on the phone and then slid it into the pocket of his warmup trousers.

"It's my decision because I'm the one feeling the pain and it's my body", Embiid said.

Johnson issued an apology a few hours after the team's 111-102 loss. "I also apologize to my teammates, the 76ers organization and the fans for the distraction this has caused", said Johnson in a release. The rule book, under the "Use of Technology" section, says violations will "result in substantial fines and/or suspensions". He did not disclose the amount. While there are plenty of things to take away from the game, much of the attention in the immediate aftermath came from Sixers center Amir Johnson pulling out his phone and showing Joel Embiid a text on the bench.

Webb Simpson was seven-under through 15 holes to sit one back of Finau alongside Xander Schauffele, Scott and Koepka. But I don't think I'll get that.

Coach Brett Brown did mention that we will see a "different Ben Simmons in Game 2" so that is something to look forward to as the series moves on to the next one.

Brown said he would deal with Johnson, but he declined to address any specific discipline. This season, Embiid is averaging 27.5 points, 13.6 rebounds and 3.7 assists per game.
